Ghanaian-born English teen sensation Benicio Baker-Boaitey has completed a permanent move to Brighton.
The 18-year-old initially joined the Seagulls on loan from FC Porto in January.
After making progress in the half-season spell, he has now signed for a year and will link up with the Brighton under-23 squad.
“Since he came on loan in January, Benicio has shown his ability and worked hard in both training and matches to earn the move.
“We are really looking forward to working with him on his ongoing development this coming season,” Brighton’s under-23s boss Andrew Crofts said.
Benicio Baker-Boaitey came through the ranks with West Ham, before leaving for Porto at the beginning of the 2020/21 season.
